Objects > Schedules

  • Objects > Schedules
By default, Security policy rules are always in effect (all dates and times). To limit a Security policy rule to specific times, you can define schedules, and then apply them to the appropriate policies. For each schedule, you can specify a fixed date and time range or a recurring daily or weekly schedule. To apply schedules to security policies, refer to Policies > Security.
When a Security policy rule is invoked by a defined schedule, only new sessions are affected by the applied Security policy rule. Existing sessions are not affected by the scheduled policy.
Schedule Settings
Description
Name
Enter a schedule name (up to 31 characters). This name appears in the schedule list when defining security policies. The name is case-sensitive and must be unique. Use only letters, numbers, spaces, hyphens, and underscores.
Shared
Select this option if you want the schedule to be available to:
  • Every virtual system (vsys) on a multi-vsys firewall. If you clear this selection, the schedule will be available only to the Virtual System selected in the Objects tab.
  • Every device group on Panorama. If you clear this selection, the schedule will be available only to the Device Group selected in the Objects tab.
Disable override (Panorama only)
Select this option to prevent administrators from overriding the settings of this schedule in device groups that inherit the schedule. This selection is cleared by default, which means administrators can override the settings for any device group that inherits the schedule.
Recurrence
Select the type of schedule (Daily, Weekly, or Non-Recurring).
Daily
Click Add and specify a Start Time and End Time in 24-hour format (HH:MM).
Weekly
Click Add, select a Day of Week, and specify the Start Time and End Time in 24-hour format (HH:MM).
Non-recurring
Click Add and specify a Start Date, Start Time, End Date, and End Time.
